Can I switch RAID controller cards without losing data?
I'm fed up with my file server. I believe the poor performance may have something to do with the RAID controller card (Promise Fastrack 150 SX4, if you're interested).
If I switch out the controller card & setup the new card (from a different manufacturer) to the same mode (RAID 5, in my case), will the data still be there, or do different cards have different methods of spanning disks?
There's currently about 600 Gigs of data on the disks, so a backup is somewhat out of the question.
